COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS

Comprehensive Eye Exams IndianapolisComprehensive eye examinations are very important not only to determine if you need correction to see well, but also to maintain the health of your eye.

While some eye diseases have obvious symptoms such as red eyes, light sensitivity, or flashing lights, many serious, vision-threatening problems have no warning signs. Glaucoma, for example, will present no symptoms until actual vision loss occurs. Proper eye care and evaluations can help prevent vision loss. Comprehensive eye exams can also detect diabetes, hypertension, retinal holes or tears, and other important treatable medical conditions.

Preparing for Your Eye Examination at Whitson Vision

When a person calls to make an eye appointment, he or she should be prepared to describe any current vision problems. In addition, patients should ask if the eye examination will affect their vision temporarily and if they will need someone to drive them home. They may also want to ask about the cost of the exam, if their insurance plan will cover any of the cost, and how payment is handled.

Before going to the appointment, patients should gather information to help answer questions the eye care professional may ask.
